Ok… I think I found a bug and don’t know whether it’s been found already or not.
Working on WinXP
Scrivener Beta 0.24
Copying from OpenOffice word processing document saved as a Microsoft Word 97-2003 format.
I copy and attempt to paste text into scrivener under Manuscript/ Part/ Chapter…
I paste it into Scrivener and some of the text doesn’t appear. There will be whitespace below some of the text that has pasted. If I click in the whitespace, text will appear and the window can scroll further down. I continue clicking in white space and it continues to populate more text in there until it appears that all of the text I wanted in there is present.
I had a situation previously where I was simply unable to paste a large amount of text into Scrivener. It pasted a certain amount and then would NOT paste anyh more. I would copy portions of the text further down in the OpenOffice document but it would not paste within Scrivener.
Hope this helps and I hope it gets resolved. I’m beginning to really like this program… however, I’m currently keeping Scrivener AND my OpenOffice document current with what I’m writing. Writing everything twice is a pain and I’d rather not thave to do that.
